Gen.T Connect: Meet The Four Leaders Driving The Initiative’s Very First Discussions
Serving as ambassadors for their respective cities—Singapore, Hong Kong, Shanghai and Beijing—they initiate and engage in discussion groups with other young leaders, driving forward meaningful conversations and change on issues impacting Asia.
Here are our first four Gen.T Connect ambassadors.
The co-founder of Ladies Who Tech, Jill Tang is helping to narrow the gender gap and promote inclusion in the science, technology, engineering and mathematics sectors, where women have traditionally been under-represented. With a presence in Hong Kong, Taiwan and Mainland China, her company has reached over 10,000 women and worked with major companies including Microsoft, eBay and Ikea.
The founder and CEO of alternative education centre Own Academy, Natalie Chan is empowering young people to take ownership of their own learning. Her hope is to help them to be the changemakers and problem solvers of the future. In 2019, she was one of 40 youth representatives to be invited to the World Economic Forum’s annual meeting of global leaders.
An expert in community building, Vivian Lim helms Tedx Singapore as its lead curator and is also the co-founder of Women In Asia, a platform that brings together thinkers, innovators and leaders with the aim of building a more open and inclusive society. In 2019, she was selected as an Obama Foundation Asia-Pacific Leader.
As the founder and CEO of TechRock Global, Claire Du opens communication channels between business and political leaders in China and beyond. She has served as the liaison between Chinese national leaders and the likes of Bill Clinton, Tony Blair and Peggy Rockefeller. She also advises various VC firms, sits on multiple advisory and executive boards, and is active in social philanthropy and the promotion of women’s entrepreneurship and education.
